The Making of a Leader Part 3 – Excuses, Excuses

 The Making of a Leader 

Part 3 – Excuses, Excuses

Exodus 3

The greatest privilege of man is to be used by God to do His work.  A man must not only be empty of selfish pride and sufficiency to be used, but must also be willing to allow God to perform His will in His abilities and design.

Moses and The Fine Art of Making Excuses

·  Fear of Failure: the reason for most excuses.

·  It is a built-in human tendency to blame others for our faults.

·  Nearly all excuses are immaculately logical, but only to the person making them.

·  When we repeatedly make excuses, they become a belief. The belief then becomes a self-fulfillingprophecy.

·  I AM = "I will be what I will be" and "I will do what I will do!” 

·  We should not be so foolish as to believe that all we can know of God is His revelation to thisgeneration.

·  What is clear is God’s desire and His promise

God warns of Difficulty of Task v. 19-20
